Getting there:

The A596 bypasses Wigton to the north and the A595 runs roughly parallel 1.5 miles to the south.

From the A596:  Turn off the A596 onto the B5302 (signed Wigton) towards the town centre. Turn into Market Place when you see an elaborate Victorian fountain. The church is on the left  a few hundred yards from the junction.

From the A595:  From the north turn right at a crossroads with the B5305. In Wigton turn right onto the B5304 (signed Silloth) and continue for about 600 yards until you see the church on your right. From the west turn left onto the B5304. Stay on this road, about 1½ miles; the church is on the right of the road as you approach the town centre.

By Rail:  Wigton station, on the Cumbrian Coast line,  is about half a mile from the church.


Limited parking on High Street across the road at the Goose Market.

Pay and display parking in the  Water Street car park just to the north east of the church.


Enter the church through the west door. Take the stairs on the right to reach a narrow landing which leads to the ringing room.


In vestry at the Church.
